with a predictably defensive editorial by mayor michael bloomberg in the "washington post" in which the mayor took turns defending stop and fricsk and attacking the "washington post," itself, and others were criticizing the practice saying "the men and women who protect our city from criminals and terrorists deserve better than to have their integrity impugned in a courtroom or a newspaper especially when the facts are so clearly on their side." even today speaking at a press conference, touting the largest gun seizure in new york history, both men looked to play up the role of stop and frisk in getting guns off the street. >> wiretap conversations from this investigation show that one of the gun traffickers' biggest concerns was stop, question, frisk. >> campbell didn't want to risk it being found by new york police and is heard saying, "yeah. i'm in charlotte now. i can't take them to my house, to my side of town, in brownsville. we got, like, watchamacallit, stop and frisk. >> mayor bloomberg and commissioner kelly doubling down and repeating the same statements again and again over stop and fr

, and the strong ties between the pentagon and egyptian army, little doubt washington's strongest support is for the generals. >> let me stop you there. that, to me, is what's so interesting about this entire conversation. obviously the american government was allied with mubarak for years. millions of dollars in aid. if you were to say to me egyptians are angry because the u.s. government is too closely aligned with the egyptian military or closely aligned with mubarak, i understand. the notion that america of all cases, prosecuting a global war against terror, jihadis, extremists of all islamic varieties across the world for ten years, people would think they were in bed with the muslim brotherhood. i would not believe you. >> i mean, look, while morsi was in power, there was a relationship, of course, with the obama administration and the muslim brotherhood. we saw hamid morsi deal well in the eyes of the united states with israel's assault on gaza in november and he was hailed for his role in that. and subsequently after that, he issued a constitutional declaration which gave wide-rea

court in washington had previously held that texas failed to meet its burden of proving its redistricting plans and voter i.d. law were not discriminatory. but that was set aside when the supreme court gutted a key section of the voting rights act leaving texas governor rick perry at liberty to implement the strict photo i.d. law. with today's action, attorney general holder is fighting back under another section of the voting rights act which still stands. meanwhile, states of arizona and kansas are suing the federal government to allow those states to go ahead with their plans to demand proof of citizenship in order to register to vote. they've been stopped from doing so by another supreme court ruling, though in that same ruling the court did say that states could sue the federal government over the issue. which is what they announced they're doing today. georgia and alabama are also affected by that same supreme court ruling, so today alone, voting rights in five states are in direct play because of various lawsuits, and that's not all. today brought an absolutely remark

unpopular incumbent, and the reasons are, number one, he's been in washington forever. and that gets to you eventually, especially these days in a time when people have an absolutely sulfurous attitude toward washington and everything about it. number two, mcconnell has tried to have it both ways. some of the time he's talked about how he's brought projects and money and funding back to kentucky. in recent years, he's been sort of putting up his hands and shouting no at every project. he's kind of caught between the two. the third fact which is he's an insider and everybody knows it. >> that's what's so fascinating. he's caught -- the "huffington post" did this amazing 10,000-word piece about mitch mcconnell's history in the state. you see a guy, on the ground in kentucky, was good at bringing home the bacon. he was kind of a classic southern insider, i'll get you the pet projects you need, i'll bring back the federal dollars. now he's living in the tea party era where there's become an athema. how seriously are they taking this primary challenge? >> they're taking it seriously. if christin
